Cushman & Wakefield’s Legal Sector Advisory Group has published its proprietary 2019 National Legal Sector Benchmark Survey – Bright Insight. This year concludes six years of intellectual capital gathering. Since the survey’s inception, we have seen many trend shifts and new issues gaining prominence that are directly impacting the legal sector, its business drivers and law firm decision making. Nearly 1,400 law firm decision makers and associates participated in this year’s confidential survey – our greatest response rate to date and a testament to the legal sector’s interest in the information we are gathering. Respondents ranged from firms with under 20 attorneys to global mega firms, with the highest rates of response from the Midwest (22%) and Northeast (21%) regions of the United States.
